My Students

My kindergarten students are a bunch of eager five- and six-year olds. They come from various socioeconomic and academic backgrounds. Although my students have diverse backgrounds, we all have the same goal: to learn! My kindergarten class is a place of learning and discovery. For many students, this will be their first school experience. They will spend the year building a foundation of knowledge that will allow them to be successful in their education. My students are excited to learn and ready to explore from the very first day and as their teacher, I’m very eager to give them various learning experiences and provide opportunities for growth and academic success.

My Project

My students are needing headphones for their Chromebooks! Our school has purchased both Math and ELA programs to help our students succeed academically. Unfortunately, we do not have headphones to help our students use these programs effectively.

At my school we service children of seven different languages, including a number of military and special needs children.

Headphones would help all of our children to feel confident and less distracted while working on programs to strengthen the skills they need to be successful in all subject areas.

Please help me help my children to succeed! We believe every child can learn!
